cursed for me

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—
Galatians 3:13

Cursed for me
by condemnation
to the cross
He willingly carried
my shame

Mocked for me
by sinners
gathered round Him
as He was dying
scoffing His name

Dying for me
Jesus took
my punishment
on a cross
of wood

Forgiving me
and the others
who mocked Him
in mercy He did
all He could

Living for me
so I am delivered
from sin, shame, guilt, wrath
Jesus rose and gave me
life eternal

Blessing me now
in the heavenly places
He intercedes
and pleads and loves me
co-heir with Him fraternal
